Hot stuff in RAID 0. Close to good SSDs in read/write speed costing twice as much and obviously offering two terabytes of storage, instead of 60-120
#2
If you are after storage rather than speed via RAID, I would maybe suggest looking at the 2TB Samsung F3 for <£80 on Aria.co.uk.
#3
I paid £99.23 the other week for these 2! Asked Scan if they would refund the difference and was told No (politely)
Dont think mine were OEM? they came with instructions and screws. Ah well, still great value!

I think they're the OEM ones. Retail ones would come in a pretty cardboard box - although, I must admit I've never seen a Samsung retail drive for sale.
#5
Scan are great but these drives are rather poor but if price is the main point go for gold
#6
yeah like goretex says these drives are pants... you better off burning the data 2 disk then leaving it on a bus for a week then expecting it to still be there.

What are you saying? they are unreliable?
#8
Ive had these for only a week so cant comment on how it will perform longterm but i am pleased with the performance so far.

Plenty of good reviews for them, 46 pages of them here... http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N82E16822152185

I have a whole load of these 1TB F3 in several servers - none have missed beat.

These threads always bring out the Samsung / WD / Seagate / nay sayers / fruit loops. ;-)

Lol without fail, as soon as someone has a drive fail on them everything that manufacturer ever produces past, present or future is dirt in their eyes.
#11
The F3's are generally agreed to be some of, if not the, best normal HDD's out there at the moment. They are reliable, quiet and fast.

If you are going to make odd comments about them not being the above, please back up (and not just with 1 man and his failed drive....)
#12
just bought these 2 and a readynas duo to put them in (heres hoping they work ok together)
#13
Bought two of the 1.5TB F3 Samsung drives from Scan a few days ago and both are serial checked and covered by 3 year Samsung warranty. Hope I don't need to use it, but then I've had drives fail from all manufacturers so who knows! Good price for 2 x 1TB.

It's for a desktop not a laptop.

And you also wouldn't need the same brand hard drive to go into your laptop. You could use any brand of hard drive as long as it was 2.5" :)

Awesome deal.

I've never ordered with scan but am aware of the free shipping for hexus members, is there any cheap-ish postage option considering I'm not a hexus member and could really do without having another forum to trawl through?

That's the spirit mamboboy, waste people's time!

How about posting a genuine problem, helping others or if you're going to post nonsense then do so in an appropriate thread over at Hexus, rather than waste the time of people freely helping others due to their own good will?

Some people, cough, *osser!
#18
I currently have an F1 and a F3 1TB drives and very happy with them.

Had issues with my F3 when it arrived - but found out straight away and had it replaced.

For this price for 2 it is a really good price. They have been hovering around the £60-65 price point for the last 6 months, so you are making a reasonable saving, and gives you plenty of options with configuration and storage.

It isn't SSD, but it is one of the fastest high capacity traditional drives

I'm pretty sure that if you just sign up to AVForums then link your account you get free delivery over £20 from Scan. I do and I don't have any posts there...

More about it here.

I see, repped heavywater :)
#21
Scan isnt the best retailer, I think the problems come when you have to send something back and the customer service is aweful tbh.
#22
I heard the same thing about Ebuyer but they have never failed me when I've had to return anything and I have returned A LOT.
